We all recognize, or we should, who are the frontline Patriots, or better said the Unknown Patriot that have allowed us to stay free in our nation, they are the ones who provide that blanket of freedom we all enjoy and hold so dear. They are our U.S. Military and those called up that stand guard every day, 24 hours a day.

However, inside our nation there are those conservatives who without their unending support and on guard work, our nation from the inside out would collapse into a massive heap of utter destruction. This is the inside never ending war to protect our liberties and ultimately our freedom.

Winston Churchill who was conservative, who served as Prime Minister of England during World War II, had the following to say about England’s Unknown Patriots and to those who were finally overtaken by the darkness of the relentless Nazi march, with Hitler’s boot bearing down on the necks of the people over the continent of Europe. The blanket of freedom removed and replaced by a dark cloak.

“This is no war of chieftains or of princes, of dynasties or national ambition; it is a War of peoples and of causes. There are vast numbers not only in this island but in every land, who will render faithful service in this War, but whose names will never be known, whose deeds will never be recorded. This is a War of the Unknown Warriors; but let all strive without failing in faith or in duty, and the dark curse of Hitler will be lifted from our age.”1

In a very small sampling done on my Twitter account, which by no means is complete or scientific, there seems to be a trend towards whom or what the true Hero of our present political environment in the nation is. Who do you think is the true Hero? Is it President Trump, Congress or the Unknown Patriot?

During 2010 the House of Representatives in response to Obama’s victory of 2008 there was a massive upset unseating Democrats, electing Republicans not seen for 70 years! This was accomplished by conservative Unknown Patriots. This huge upset was due no doubt to the crippling measures that the Obama Administration had taken to push the nation into further economic decline towards a much darker path of government control, that we have been on for over 100 years. However, Obama won again in 2012, even though we had massive unemployment, IRS targeting conservative organizations, massive Welfare recipient increases, and National Defense sequestration to strangle the U.S. Military, reducing it in size and an EPA that was used as an instrument to strangle the economy even more so.

Moreover, what many people did not realize during the massive 2010 conservative turnover election of the House in congress, while preceding huge state houses and governorships gains to Republicans was that our students in our K-12 public educational institutions were under an onslaught of Marxist and Progressive indoctrination. Indoctrination that apparently is not applied exclusively in colleges as so many thought was happening. Numerous textbooks contain falsehoods concerning our U.S. Constitution and individual rights and where they come from, even now up to present day found in elementary education and up. Most of the younger generation firmly believes that the government is sovereign and hold the ultimate power in our nation, when the reverse is true, the people do. If you have children or you are a grandparent you cannot sit idly by and allow what people call the Left to brainwash your child into submission to our government as their parent or guardian.

During the 80’s, then President Ronald Reagan had the following to say about Americans:

Not all of us are called upon in our daily professions to face danger and hardship. But each of us has the same responsibility as the hero to live our lives with honor and dedication, to give a hundred percent to the tasks before us, and to know that every day our efforts are building the edifice of freedom and powering the engines of human progress.”2

The real heroes, as you may have ascertained by now of protecting our political system are the “Unknown Patriot”; the conservative. Those who work the phones and social media and attend and conduct rallies for political figures, those who write columns tirelessly to inform, and those who are well known that speak on conservative radio all across our blessed land, exposing and revealing the dangers that lurk among us all.

The war of ideologies are not over and it continues to this day, many battles yet to be fought, because in the end, it never ends and as many have heard many times before, freedom is not free and must be fought for each and every day, even within our very own borders.

Are we living in a “Thunder Dome” in America where political discourse is continuous, I say yes, yes we are. Who can deliver us? Who can ensure our freedom? “We don’t need to know the way home


“We Don’t Need Another Hero”

Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can’t make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond

Looking for something
We can rely on
There’s gotta be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear till nothing else remains

All the children say
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond

So what do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a light
Or end in the dark
Give it all or nothing

We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
